47. Hardly - "assault" means specific things
and yes, large magazine capacity is one of them. US doctrine is in fact (although it is a holdover of the cold war) "I have more bullets loaded and ready than you".

The M16A2 I carried in Iraq didnt have automatic as an option. But you know that. I still assaulted targets with it. The semi-auto rate of fire is HIGH, as fast as I can pull the trigger, and Ive burned through my 210 rounds of standard issue in a few short minutes more than once. In reality, an AR15 isnt that far behind a fully auto weapon.

Gun nuts (I am a gun enthhusiast) only want to talk about part of the 2nd amendment. Lets talk about the word REGULATE thats in it too.
